Thank you again for your generous support of the PittAdvantage Grant! The application deadline to receive a grant for this summer was last Friday, March 3rd and we received over 80 applications!!! While students are enjoying their spring break, the review committee will be busy going over applications and narrowing it down to the final 30 recipients. It's not an easy process as all students that submitted applications have worked very hard and chosen amazing experiences! Here is a breakdown of applications received this year:
- More than 30 different majors are represented in student applications - from Industrial Engineering to Early Childhood Education
- We received 6 applications for service learning projects; 17 for unpaid internships; and 54 for various study abroad experiences
- All applicants have completed the Outside the Classroom Curriculum in full and are members of the Honorary Society
With only 28 days left in our campaign, we're almost to 7% of our goal, or $500.00. If we reach our goal of $7,500, we'll be able to fund FIVE ADDITIONAL GRANTS to some very well-deserving students.
Join the other supporters of the campaign with a gift to the fund by visiting our website today https://engage.pitt.edu/project/5739
Even if you are unable to give, there are other ways you can help our campaign. Please spread the word to family, friends, and colleagues through Facebook, Twitter, email and other social media about the PittAdvantage Grant Campaign.
With many thanks,
